New Mexico Land Conservancy

Helping people conserve the places they love.


Conservation easements protect:

Working Lands    

Helping ranchers and farmers keep their properties whole and their heritage preserved, providing food and protecting New Mexico’s open space for public benefit.



Helping ensure that our watersheds remain whole and healthy – filtering and replenishing – and that precious, life-giving creeks, streams, and other water flows are protected.



Helping protect the natural resources that wildlife depend on: water, habitat, and open space for their migratory corridors and flyways. After all, wildlife and nature, in general, don’t recognize property lines!


Our Vision: One Million Acres Conserved!

Goal: 250,000 acres by 2020

197,047 acres so far!

Conserving land. Preserving heritage.
